Rachel, it's the Navigation bridge, as everybody from around there know it as. You have done well with that pic, i have been under there many many times but never seen it like that.


Comment by Mick on 8th November 2015 at 07:59
This one is a bit different than the run off the mill ones.

Looks like the handrails had a fresh coat of paint, hope the next job is resurfacing the tow path.


Comment by Aubrey on 8th November 2015 at 08:37
Certainly different, a good photo Rachel.


Comment by maggie. on 8th November 2015 at 08:59
All canal bridges have a number. it is a valuable navigation aid, so do not think you have made a mistake Rachel. We have a (legal) Oxford canal bridge number as our house number.


Comment by Helen on 8th November 2015 at 09:18
I think that is a brilliant photo,

Well done Rachel !


Comment by kath on 8th November 2015 at 09:25
brilliant!


Comment by christine on 8th November 2015 at 10:46
good photo


Comment by Fred Mason on 8th November 2015 at 11:56
Great composition, Rachel.

Well done you...!!!


Comment by Maureen on 8th November 2015 at 12:46
Brilliant photo Rachel..you have an artistic eye.


Comment by Garry on 8th November 2015 at 14:38
Lovely, what you see is what you get 10/10.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th November 2015 at 16:39
Unusual viewpoint Janice. It`s actually in Shevington - the boundary is the river Douglas.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th November 2015 at 21:23
Sorry Rachel - another senior moment!


Comment by Garry on 9th November 2015 at 07:02
Another senior comment it's Gathhurst.


Comment by Jonno on 9th November 2015 at 11:08
I think you'll find that there's no such a place as GatHHurst Garry, i presume you are referring to Gathurst. The river Douglas marks the southern boundary of Shevington and therefore, the canal bridge, like Ernest stated, is in Shevington.


Comment by Jonno on 9th November 2015 at 11:45
Maggie, we know all bridges are numbered and that this one is 46, no one is saying that Rachel has made a mistake, i was only telling her what the locals call it, this bridge has been known locally for the last 75 years that i know of, as The Navigation bridge, named after the pub that stood alongside it, which, for the last few years has been an Indian restaurant as Rachel called it, The Baby Elephant, but, will ALWAYS be known as The Navigation bridge, to people who know it and live in the area.


Comment by Garry on 9th November 2015 at 13:31
Jonuo It's Gathurst and it's on the Map.


Comment by Eddie. on 9th November 2015 at 17:07
Nice shot. Cleverly thought out.


Comment by Rachel on 10th November 2015 at 09:20
Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments


Comment by Jonno on 10th November 2015 at 13:35
Garry, yes, Gathurst WILL be on the map. Look on British History Online and you will see that Gathurst is a PART of Shevington, so, although you you think the bridge is in Gathurst it is technically in Shevington.


Comment by Kas on 10th November 2015 at 18:47
Ernest , Jonno , Garry, please help me on this. Ernest says the boundary line , I,m talking about Gathurst and Shevvy , is the River Douglas, is this correct?


Comment by Jonno on 11th November 2015 at 00:48
Kas,yes it is.


Comment by Garry on 11th November 2015 at 20:00
No it's not Kas.


Comment by Kas on 27th November 2015 at 16:33
That's clear then?
